Is this permit for an existing security alarm system?
If you already have a security alarm system but you do not have a permit, you will have to pay for your permit at the end of the application process.
Is this permit for a new security alarm system?
If your security alarm system has been newly installed, your alarm company may have either included the permit fee in your installation fee, or collected a separate payment from you. If the alarm company gave you a permit number, you will not have to pay at the end of the application process.
